It's time to take a look back at the week that was..
- The Diamondbacks announced that they have hired Kevin Towers as their new GM. It was initially reported that interim GM Jerry Dipoto would not return to the organization, but it now seems that Towers has convinced him to stay. Dipoto will assume a "high-level" position with the club. Towers says that he hopes to bolster the club's bench and bullpen.
- Talks between Washington and Adam Dunn have picked up and the slugger believes that he'll be a member of the Nationals in 2011.
- This will be a pivotal offseason for White Sox slugger Paul Konerko as he heads into free agency. Konerko says that if he's not happy with what's available to him this winter, he may retire.
- On Tuesday the Cardinals released Felipe Lopez and the veteran was quickly claimed by the Padres. However, Lopez rejected San Diego's offer and instead signed with Boston. Part of Lopez's appeal to Boston is his Type B status.
- We haven't heard too much from Magglio Ordonez since he underwent season-ending surgery last month, but teammate Miguel Cabrera says that the veteran outfielder wants to return to Detroit.
- The Orioles could be in the mix to sign Victor Martinez.
- Colorado considered trading for a starter down the stretch but opted not to.
- The Mets reportedly have too much money committed to their current roster to pursue players such as Cliff Lee this winter.
- Postseason success won't affect the Rays' 2011 payroll.
- Top executives might want nothing to do with the Mets.
- The Brewers signed righthander Mark DiFelice to a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training.
- Veteran infielder Edgar Renteria may retire after this season.
- The Cubs DFA'd Mitch Atkins.
- I wonder if Cesar Carrillo keeps a bag packed at all times. The pitcher has now been claimed by the Astros.
